NEW YORK, May 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trident Acquisitions Corp. (NASDAQ: TDACU, TDAC, TDACW) (“Trident”) or the “Company”), a special purpose acquisition company, announced that it has filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a supplement to its proxy statement seeking approval of its stockholders to extend the time to complete its business combination for an additional three months to September 1, 2021, subject to an additional three month extension to December 1, 2021 upon approval of the Company’s board of directors (the “Extension”).
The proxy supplement reflects that pursuant to an amendment to the Company’s Trust Agreement, the Company changed the vote required to amend the Trust Agreement for purposes of extending the date by which the Company has to consummate a business combination from a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock sold in the Company’s IPO to a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock. In addition, for each month of the extension, if the daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock for any 10 consecutive trading days in the prior month is below $11.40 per share, as determined two (2) trading days prior to the last day of such month, the Company must deposit, or cause to be deposited by its insiders, $0.05 for each public share of common stock that was not redeemed in connection with the special meeting into the Company’s trust account.
The purpose of the Extension is to permit sufficient time for Trident to consummate its previously announced proposed business combination with Lottery.com, including filing a registration statement on Form S-4 that will include a proxy statement. For a summary of the material terms of the proposed transaction, please see Trident’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 23, 2021 with the SEC in connection with the announcement of the proposed business combination.
